YOUNG TURK RORY STEWART IN INTERVENTION DEBATE IN LONDON – AND HE IS TAKING THE RIGHT SIDE!

There will be an intriguing debate in London (makes me wish the blogging budget would allow a quick trip across the pond!) on March 3, 2011.  The topic is:

Some leaders are so objectionable – Saddam Hussein, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Robert Mugabe – that it may seem only right to strain every sinew to get rid of them. But ghastly as their regimes may be, is there any reason to think that foreign intervention makes the situation better? Quite apart from the loss of life and limb to those intervening, what are the costs to those being “liberated”? In the end, forced to choose between these two evils, wouldn’t most of us prefer tyranny to anarchy?

The debate is put on my an outfit called Intelligence Squared.  Here are the details.  There is  live streaming of this debate and I may have details afterwards.  Young Turk Rory Stewart, MP, OBE is on the affirmative and David Aaronovitch, London Times columnist for the negative.  Go Rory go!

Here is my source for this – Stewart’s webpage!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
